Architectural engineering seminar to focus on disinfection systems

Mohammad Heidarinejad, a doctoral candidate in architectural engineering, will present "Computational Fluid Dynamics as a Tool to Predict Performance of Upper-Room Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradition (UR-UVGI) Disinfection Systems" at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 12, in 107 Engineering Unit B on Penn State's University Park campus.

The event, free and open to the public, is part of the ongoing Architectural Engineering Seminar Series.

Heidarinejad's work looks at how computational fluid dynamics can be used to predict dispersal patterns for airborne microorganisms. He will discuss advances in upper-room ultraviolet germicidal irradiation lamps and their use in hospitals and laboratories.
